Banana & Vanilla Wafer Icecream Trifle

My husband REALLY likes banana pudding, you know the kind that’s layered in a dish with pudding, bananas and vanilla wafers? He also enjoys the Dairy Queen’s banana cream pie blizzard. Well, in honor of father’s day, I wanted to create a twist on that dessert, using our favorite vanilla ice-cream instead.
